, he who knows pain like none other


"And as I sat there, brooding on the old unknown world, I
thought of
Gatsby's wonder when he first picked out the green light at
the end of
Daisy's dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn and
his dream
must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp
it. He
did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back
in that
vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the
republic
rolled on under the night.

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future
that year by
year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no
matter --
tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther...
And one
fine morning--

"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back
ceaselessly into
the past."

- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
